healthcare legislation known as romney care introduced to massachusetts back in 2006 also faced a weak start. only 123 people signed up for the bay state's healthcare plan after the first month. by the end of the first year 36,000 people had signed up. but figures tell us that 20% of those left their enrollment to the final month, until the 11th hour effectively before penalties were not having healthcare kicked in. tony, healthcare dot goff may well be in intensive care for now, but the prognosis to keep the medical puns going, but before you take it back daniel our graphics artist did this as a present for you. it's been a long week of news. and this is the healthcare site. it has a little thermometer in its mouth because it is clearly sick. >> we're on fire. appreciate that, and pass along the thanks. appreciate it. >> okay, halloween is barely over but itnot stop retailers from getting a jump on black friday a month earlier than usual. great detail coming up on this program.

line. that is how you get it deal. host: kevin, boston, massachusetts, for democrats. you are on with trita parsi. caller: i agree with the caller earlier who was saying why is netanyahu screaming about orion iran having nuclear weapons? it is necessary for them to have that to have energy throughout their country and it creates jobs for their country. i also think we need to put israel in check. it seems like they are trying to take focus off of what they are doing in their country. they are taking all of the palestinians' land and dividing that country. netanyahu -- he feels pity because they are treating me palestinian people the same way that germany treated the israeli people. host: do think that is a fair assessment? guest: i would say that because the iranians are -- of the mpt. the and national -- the international community is mindful of the fact -- i don't think they need a nuclear weapons. if they go nuclear and causes a nuclear domino effect in the middle east, then you have other countries starting nuclear weapons programs. that would eliminate a conventional

storm system, that stretches from texas to massachusetts hurtling eastward bringing high winds and leaving a trail of damage. tornadoes reported in arkansas and southern illinois. in austin texas, yesterday we saw over a hundred water rescues. you can see they are struggling to get the bus out of the river. one thing we learned today, all school kids in the state of kansas are required to practice bus evacuation drills. and we're told that in this case, it might have saved lives. david. >> clayton, thanks to you. brave school children, abc meteorologist tracking all of this. you say we might be dealing with flurries behind it. >> yes. behind the cold front that did this. more than 300 severe weather reports for really much of the nation. you see some of them focused in the northeast and tennessee valley, southern indiana, a lot of wind damage. but behind it, watch this low pressure system, it travels up to the northeast, into canada and behind comes chilly air. not only chilly like detroit in the 40s throughout the weekend but you see snowflakes around the makes, syracuse, pitt
these shopping days on thanksgiving. >> that's right. a vestage of the old blue laws in maine, massachusetts, rhode island prohibiting a lot of stores opening on sundays and holidays. in new hampshire, there is a manager of a sears who was told by corporate to open today and she is refusing. richard? >> going to buy a tv later if it fits in the car that is. compared to yesterday it's a much better weather day to head out for dipper or shopping. it's windy as well in new york city and we are waiting to see if the macy's thanksgiving day balloons will fly. 16 balloons will be grounded if the sustained winds top 23 miles per hour or wind gusts hit 34 miles per hour. watching those wind gusts, before bill heads out to have a very good thanksgiving turkey. you got the stuff right there. >> we don't get a lot of breaking news on thanksgiving. macy's has just tweeted out what's going to happen with the blons. >> and? >> they are saying let it fly. al roker know what is he's talking about. you can give al a shout out today too. >> and bill too. >> that's all right. al roker is like the grand marshal
if the massachusetts model is correct. however, this is not just a debate about enrollment but a huge system failing the american public prior to that. people's memories aren't short-term but long-term. they understand the individual marketplace is a complete disaster and needs to be reformed. while there are horror stories dominating the news now, in eight month's time, 12 month's time you're going to see a lot of people saying, wow, these reforms were probably good for the system. >> i'm not sure i quite agree nothing would get done. they do have alternatives. republicans have alternatives. the alternatives leave more people, many hundreds of thousands -- >> we take them at their word on what they propose. that's the best we've got. >> i feel like people would much rather have -- >> status quo -- >> tens of thousands of people stuck in the online waiting room than the realities of many millions thrown off of medicaid. we're already seeing the clear willingness of republican state lawmakers to refuse medication expansion to the neediest members of their constituencies once they were given that opti
with all of the winds. just west of boston, weldly, massachusetts. trees down, power lines and power outages in that area. so much nicer today in boston for the red sox parade today. in flint, we talk about wind gusts about 45 miles per hour. and they had big issues, too. the video almost looks the same. but it's before and after the front goes through. either way. let's look at what happens today. you get the kicked-up winds. and lake erie, in this picture, is it going to be calmer? it will. but it will be colder, too. a second cold front. along the coast will be nice. philadelphia, 66. new york, 65. but here behind, fleuries mixing in for rains for parts like pittsburgh, erie, and buffalo and syracuse. a winter feel by sunday into monday. and then, the new storm out west is something we're watching. not that big of a rainmaker. but we think the big issue is going to be wind. along the coastline, you see as the low comes in. 60-plus-mile-per-hour winds there. seattle, between 60 and 40-mile-per-hour winds. that's something we'll be looking for to start the workweek. it's cold in the
after medical school. >> chose the one at the massachusetts general hospital for the reason that it was the most biologically oriented. i'm quite opposed to psychoanalytics -- >> rose: you took the words out of my mouth. are you in sync with the notion nathat neuroscience has overcome psychiatry? >> i am and i was, and that's precisely why-- i mean, i think, you know, the psychiatry, the psychoanalysis, the theory that was rooted in really nothing but speculation and wonderful writing it's freudian theories and the offshoots -- really had to yield to the coming of the knowledge in neurology, behavioral psychiatry, et cetera. and that's why i chose a program where they emphasized that. and that is what really fascinated me, the interaction between the brain and behavior. but old stuff, look, i don't-- i don't want to denigrate it. it works for some people, but i'm not really into the interior life, so after about six years, seven year of medicine, i thought well maybe if you're not interested in the interior life, psychiatry is not for you. and that's why i left. >> rose: it
bit more expensive. up as care costs will go he did in massachusetts people people will run to the doctor and get the physical. that will settle in with very good nurses and physicians and these teams of caregivers to organize primary care, chronic care management and the life care. there are lots of things we can do if we can write down the barriers across the board.
the massachusetts precedents. inyou look at what happened massachusetts, something like 0.3% of what would turn out to be the enrollment figure in that insurance reform program is what they thought the first appeared 123 people. we knew it was going to be a slow build. it is no question it has been made more challenging by the poorly functioning website, and that is on us, and that is why we are dedicating the resources and the brain power to get it fixed. the central issue here, as we talked about before, is not can we build a great website -- it is can we make sure that the american people who deserve affordable, quality health insurance are able to buy it? and that is why the president is so frustrated by the website. more frustrated than anyone else, i think it is fair to say. i will do what i did the other day move up and back. you, jay.ank is there a particular problem that it is trying to address? >> climate change. [laughter] that is a very important problem. i think this is part of the president's overall is to address this challenge that our nation in the entire world is facing. he establ
by senator ed markey of massachusetts. he just joined this year. he is one of the leading clean energy advocates on capitol hill. he cosponsored the climate change bill in 2009 with waxman, he has been planning he wanted this to be his first legislation in the senate. it says electric utilities have to provide 25% of their electricity from renewable solar, -- wind., geothermal, by 2020 five. electric utilities and natural gas have to meet efficiency targets within a period. the second was introduced by tom udall and mike udall. their first cousins, they had a similar bill, 25% by 2025 renewable energy requirement, i don't believe they had the efficiency with theirs. the raf -- ref is popular at the state level. ranging fromevels 15% to 25% over the next decade or decade and a half. it is popular among clean energy advocates and environmentalists, it does not have a lot of chance of gaining traction in this congress. republicans are in charge of the house, they're very resistant to any sort of mandate, that is what an ref is. about realng energies and legislation on capitol hill. (202)
. this is essentially a republican designed plan. it was modelled after what governor romney did in massachusetts. there were a lot of democrats who didn't particularly like that, me among them. the insurance companies are going to get 30 to 40 million new customers. if the president makes a suggestion that might help us in the transition, i think it's fair for the insurance companies to remember that they're the big winners in this and do their part. >> what else do you think the white house needs to do moving forward to get this on the right track? admittedly they've made gaffe after gaffe here? >> this is all about good implementati implementation. the reason a lot of democrats are so upset is because we supported the law and since we support the law we know in order for it to work it has to be implemented well. of course that's an exec tif function. this is about smoothing out the wrinkles, acknowledging when there is an implementation issue and then taking on the responsibility energetically to fix it asap. >> we're showing the healthcare.gov website and the president has said people can sig
